Lets Call Him Lance

Posted in politics by roving on December 28, 2008

Work has been bad. Before laying off, the company decided to share the pain and knock us down to a 32hr work week when needed. What good paying jobs that were out there are now gone. Plant closings or moving out of the country.  NAFTA hasnt worked so well for us in the upper midwest.

Now we also have the temp service scam. Back in the day if a person was out of work they simply went to the unemployment office and looked at the list of job openings and the people who worked there would also help you find a job.

There is this guy I know. Lets call him Lance. Lance has been on SSI for at least 15yrs. He has every ailment a person can think of. If you tell him about your own illness, he will top it. He used to go get checked every 6-9 months for lung cancer because he swore he had it. I could fill a whole blog just listing what he claims he has.

Right now he says he has a back injury. Sometimes he uses a wheelchair, sometimes he pushes a walker around, sometimes he carries the walker like up some stairs. I have seen him carry a cane then start using it right before he reached the door to go inside the doctors office.

The point is, because work is slow and may be for awhile, I’m making less. We didn’t get a raise this past year yet Lance did. I make less, Lance makes receives more.  We work our butts off so Lance can sit at home and complain the state and government is screwing him over.

No Lance, your the one doing the screwing. What about us who go to work every day and pay taxes?  Where is our break? You haven’t paid taxes in your whole life.  You hit the jackpot. You actually had the gall at one time to mention wanting kids then asking how much more money you would get.

Lance receives free medical, food stamps, breaks on all utilities, pays cheap rent, and gets money to boot every month.

Lance will always have that. Lance will always have a roof over his head and be taken cared for.  The working people who work  providing for Lance have no guarantees.

This country is so ass backwards.

Note: This is not towards people who legitimately are on SSI or welfare. I know there are people who truly need it and others  deserve it yet have to jump through hoops to recieves the help they need.  This is for the people we will call…Lance.

    The strange thing is THEY get food stamps. Most SS retirees dont get them. Yet many people who have been on SSI for a few years, draw more money than recent retirees

    True. I watched my retired mother count pennies hoping she could make the bills.

    Since the Supreme Court has now prevented itself from acknowledging the question of whether Barack H. Obama is or is not an Article II “natural born citizen” based on the Kenyan/British citizenship of Barack Obama’s father at the time of his birth (irrespective of whether Barack Obama is deemed a “citizen” born in Hawaii or otherwise) as a prerequisite to qualifying to serve as President of the United States under the Constitution — the Court having done so at least three times and counting, first before the Nov 4 general election and twice before the Dec 15 vote of the College of Electors — it would seem appropriate, if not necessary, for all Executive Branch departments and agencies to secure advance formal advice from the United States Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel as to how to respond to expected inquiries from federal employees who are pledged to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States” as to whether they are governed by laws, regulations, orders and directives issued under Mr. Obama during such periods that said employees, by the weight of existing legal authority and prior to a decision by the Supreme Court, believe in good faith that Mr. Obama is not an Article II “natural born citizen”.

    Moreover, each and every member of Congress should be notified that he or she is personally liable (can be sued) for his or her own failure, or the same in conspiracy with other members, to perform what is a ministerial and constitutional duty, that is, to require and/or insist that Presidential electoral votes only be counted for candidates who are “natural born citizens” under Article II of the United States Constitution, the failure of which creates a cause of action for deprivation of claimants’ constitutional rights (as allowed under the Bivens case) against employees of the Federal Government, in this case, to a lawful President and Commander in Chief, and therefore, for deprivation of adequate continuation of the United States as a Constitutional Republic. The constitutionally tortious conduct is not subject to congressional immunity and would be the jettison of Article II of the Constitution by failure to stop and/or object to the counting of electoral votes for Barack H. Obama who has admitted that at the time of his birth his father was a Kenyan/British citizen and not a citizen of the United States of America.

    Finally, if 1/20/09 comes and goes with a usurper in the Whitehouse (that is, Obama is definitely NOT an Article II “natural born citizen” — dad Kenyan/British citizen at BHO’s birth — albeit he MAY be a 14th Amendment “citizen”) with usurper enablers in Congress and the Supreme Court … God help us because many of the people will — rightfully and under our Constitution and Declaration of Independence — endeavor through other means to take back the Government from what is nothing less than a non-constitutional coup d’etat. (SCOTUS now does have the power to forestall that grim yet inevitable scenario, otherwise the blood and possible loss of our Constitutional Republic is SQUARELY ON THEIR HEADS.)
